Vale author Julian Leatherdale

We were sad to hear about the passing (on 22 April 2020) of author Julian Leatherdale, a true gentleman.

It was only a few weeks ago that we spoke to Julian about his latest book Death in the Ladies’ Goddess Club, set in 1930s Kings Cross in episode 321 of So you want to be a writer.

Julian was an avid writer, first writing non-fiction and researching for documentaries. His fiction included: Palace of Tears (2015) set in the Blue Mountains; The Opal Dragonfly, set in Elizabeth Bay House in 1850s Sydney; and Death in the Ladies’ Goddess Club, a tale of murder, blackmail and family drama.

Generous with his advice and time, Julian will be missed. The literary world has lost a wonderful man.
